Taking It Deeper


Hope is here
Shout the news to everyone
It's a new day peace has come
Jesus saves
Mercy triumphs at the cross
Love has come to rescue us
Jesus saves.
Hope is here
What a joyful noise we'll make
As we join with heaven's song...
To let all the world know that Jesus saves.
Raise a shout
To let all the world know that Jesus saves.
Free at last
Every debt has been repaid
Broken hearts can be remade
Jesus saves
See above the storms of life
See it through the darkest nights
Jesus saves
Free at last
What a joyful noise we'll make
And we join with heaven's song...
We'll sing it out
Bridge: He'll save, He'll heal, restore, reveal
The father's heart to us
He rose to raise us from the grave
His spirit lives in us...
Sing it out
Shout it out!
Sing it out!
Sing it out and shout
'till the whole world knows his name
Jesus...sing it and shout
for we will know your name
